Post contains swearing and ranting throughout.
Currently, for no good reason, wikipedia defines the way to combat this systemic gender bias as creating more articles about women.
Wikipedia is terrible at this. I mean I have done my bit, which was to create a few (hundred) articles about important women from all over the world, as was stated in the to do guide on their shiny project. Net Result? Fuck all, because all the articles were deleted without discussion per G5.
Lets see what else they achieved... oh yes, how about driving Dr. Blofeld off the project? Guy creates 96,000 articles, mostly about women. Give him a reward? Nope! Accuse him of being a worthless copyright violator, drag him through AN/I till he quits. Do the same to anyone else who likes to make articles, like elsa.rolle and whatisname. Names are not important here and listing them all is a waste of time. Point is that Wikipedia has systemically driven away anyone that cares about making articles.
Just like Wikipedia drove away anyone that cared about editing articles, anyone that cared about fixing errors, and really drives away anyone who has a brain.
Morons then do all this publicity about their "issues of systemic bias", well yes I see the fucking bias, and yes it is damn well systemic. And nope this little AI toy will not bloody well fix the problem caused by complete and utter incompetence and project mismanagement.
And what about women, well lets find a women who has edited Wikipedia. For example, my sister. Who was banned and then globally locked for having used my IP address one time. Then later globally locked again while editing on a completely different project, under her own username, using a completely different IP to me. Result. Utter fail. (but oddly not a lost editor, as she returned with a third account and didn't get blocked because proxy.) Hardly a high output editor though, having not created any new articles at all with any of her accounts.
Why? Well just maybe it's because she has better things to do that play politics on Wikipedia, maybe what I find to be a fascinating way to waste a few hours of day with instead of playing CoD or something is just not appealing? Has nobody at Wikimedia considered that their editors are mostly kids, bored students or retired teachers?
And why are the WMF so obsessed with Africa this year? Don't they know that practically no African topic meets the notability guideline? Is it maybe that they haven't read their own ~23,500 page moronic rulebook? I feel the answer here is that the WMF don't have a fucking clue, or if they do they are just hoping the donors don't know and won't find out till they have parted with their cash.
But then with the rise of these corporate rip-offs like Wikia and Everipedia and Co, why does Wikipedia even still have these rules oh so carefully crafted to maintain a pro-male, pro-western, pro-establishment bias? They have completely lost touch with the wiki ethos. It's fucking criminal.
Wikia should not exist, its basically Jimbo trying to monetise Wikipedia by establishing a rule that sends editors to his money making site. And It worked! Everipedia is a direct result of Wikipedia having no room for companies, because they are oh so big on stopping promotional articles and they must bloody well stop any dastardly paid editors, who are clearly fucking evil. Everipedia should not exist either as wikipedia should have accommodated for it's niche. Wikipedia is shedding editors and shedding brand loyalty and very soon it will be in the internet dustbin along with Geocites, AOL, Yahoo, and Bomis.
Wikipedia is touted as the free open web, but it's little more than a dusty library run by incompetent cultists with a penchant for sadism. Or maybe it's escaped everyone's attention that despite having tens of thousands of pages of rules, there is no policy on cyberbullying? Maybe this is because it's not against the rules? We wonder...
In short, are the WMF just completely up their own ass? Answer: damn right they are. This post is a parody and should not be taken as indicative of how wikipedia operates. The real thing is much worse.
